Well, first, all your 'if' statements that are returning TRUE are not
enclosed in braces.  And, in fact, shouldn't be.  Remove all the
return TRUE calls except the last one.  Much cleaner.

And second, I believe I mentioned this not too long ago, as well as
Samedi, but do_gen_comm doesn't work for mobiles, as they don't have
a desc (if (!ch->desc)).  I don't suggest removing this line.  Instead,
I would suggest setting a char pointer (char *msg) to the message
which will be "shouted" and doing:

  for (d = descriptor_list; d; d = d->next)
    if (!d->connected && d->character &&
        !PLR_FLAGGED(d->character, PLR_WRITING) &&
        !PLR_FLAGGED(d->character, PLR_MAILING))
      SEND_TO_Q(msg, d);

Easy enough, eh?
